    37 Easy-To-Use Beauty Products That Reviewers Say Have Almost Immediate Results

    No effort required *and* fast results? Guess I'll keep hitting snooze.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A set of Avarelle rounded or extra-large patches that reviewers say blend seamlessly with their skin, meaning you can even slap one on when going to the office, and let it work its pimple-draining magic. Whether it's during the day or overnight, people say their pimples are brought to a head faster than you can say pop.,

    Promising review: "I’ve tried so many brands of pimple spots, and these are hands-down the best on the market. Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a whitehead, and a pimple I shouldn’t have picked and has been a bump for about three weeks now). I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY'RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is also ideal, because it allows you to conveniently and easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back on themselves. Everyone should have these on-hand for a stubborn zit when you really need them." —Caitlyn

    2. Or! A set of Dr. Jart micro tip patches, because these'll tackle deeper, cystic acne thanks to their self-dissolving micro tips that work like your derm's usual methods. A combo of hyaluronic acid, vitamin B3, and peptides melt into the zit within ~two hours~ to soothe inflammation that usually takes MUCH longer to heal.,

    Promising review: "WOW! I’ve had a tough spot of big cystic pimples that wouldn’t dry out or get any smaller no matter what I did. I wore one of these overnight. The next day one of the pimples was completely white and gone in a few hours and the other was significantly smaller and is now almost gone. I’ve used many spot treatments before, but I LOVED this one. Definitely buying more! And I loved the microneedles it has, really think that’s what made such a difference!" —cassiefernandez

    3. A B Uniq purple hair mask to brighten your blonde hair to fully platinum in just five minutes (!!!), aka you'll space out the amount of time in-between your trips to the $$$ salon. AND it multitasks as a deep conditioner to add extra shine and help undo damage from bleaching.

    The violet formula neutralizes yellow tones left from pigment residue after bleaching or lightening, and brightens your hair without drying it out (in fact it doubles as a deep conditioner) — all in just five minutes.

    Promising review: "Let’s be honest, for an at-home hair product that takes five mins in the shower, this mask kicks ass! I’m so mad I didn’t take before-and-after pictures. But I went from a yellowy bleach blonde to a cool icy blonde in just four minutes! Badass! Next week I’m going to leave it in just a little longer to get a couple of those stubborn brassy blonde highlights out, but seriously for an at-home $25 hair treatment, you can’t beat it!" —Shelly K.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    4. A Cosrx snail essence sun cream with SPF 50 for actually finding motivation to wear protection (important!!), especially if you have oily skin. Its weightless formula of snail mucin, hyaluronic acid, and other hydrating ingredients controls excess oil, nourishes unbalanced complexions, and leaves a refreshed ~glow~. Reviewers with irritated skin say this leaves them oil-free and refreshed!


    Promising review: "I am a skincare freak, and I admit it. I also hate layering SPF over great moisturizers. I also have rosacea, so less is more on my cheeks that are super reactive. I’ve found snail mucin to have helped calm my cheeks, so I tried this as a replacement. It’s amazing. My skin looks great and it’s protected. Buy! You’re going to love it!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.98.

    5. A widely-loved HerStyler hair repair serum so you can take matters into your own hands when it comes to treating fried, damaged tresses. Infused with vitamin E, aloe vera, and argan oil, this bb works overtime to restore shine, flatten frizz, and overall bring that tired mane back to LIFE. And all it takes a few swipes of your fingers.

    Promising review: "I really love this product. I tried this as a sample a while ago and fell in love with it. When I received it the mail I used it right away and could a big difference with my hair. First, it smells really good and second, my hair feels softer. It's like I have new hair, especially if you have dry-ends. This serum transforms your dead-ends and makes them look shiny and softer. But I also spread it around my hair to give it a more shiny look. I'm really happy with this product!" —Lea Carranza

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    6. A Coty Airspun face powder that can be used as both foundation *and* setting powder — and to streamline everything down to a one-minute process. Basically acne, fine lines, and shine will be tackled all at once without having to conquer 100 beauty products (and reviewers say it keeps them matte all darn day).


    Promising review: "I am totally blown away by this product! I have been consistently using a more expensive powder for about six months, and was dissatisfied with the fact that my skin appeared oily by the end of the work day. By 5 p.m. I have been wearing my makeup for about 10 hours. I also live in a warm climate and have oily skin. By the end of my work day using this powder, my face is still very matte! I am THRILLED! This way outperforms the other powder and is 13% of the cost. I can't believe it. I'm never going back." —AlexisJulian

    Get it from Amazon for $5.67+ (available in six shades and two sizes).

    To learn more, check out "This $6 Face Powder Will Actually Make Your Makeup Look Flawless".

    7. A Benton aloe toner with an easy-to-pump, because this'll only require you to blend with your fingers (no cotton pads required) before moisturizing. Aloe, salicylic acid, and snail mucin work together to drastically moisturize and soothe your complexion — people with redness especially love this, and say they see results of calmer skin ~overnight~!

    Promising review: "This is the toner that convinced me that toners are worthwhile. My skin is very fair and tends toward splotchy redness, especially after cleansing. I apply this toner after double cleansing and I can watch as the redness recedes and my skin becomes smooth and even. It’s the one part of my routine that I never skip." —Amy K.

    Get it from Soko Glam for $19.

    8. A Vogue Effects eyeliner stamp for delivering a result we once thought was impossible: a perfect cat-eye every single morning. No steady hand or skills necessary: this'll stamp sharp wings on in under 60 seconds.

    This miracle worker has two sides: one is a triangle-shaped tip to create the perfect winged tip, while the other effortlessly glides to complete the look. It's even available in three sizes so you can choose the thickness of your wings!

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying this isn't my first cat-eye rodeo. I've tried the taping method, normal liquid liner, plastic winged stamping devices, stencils, all of it! So when I saw this I thought, meh, why not give it a shot. Well, this gem arrived and I immediately had to try it out, all while laughing at how terrible this would probably turn out....but to my surprise it was perfect. I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE BEEN ABLE TO DO A CAT-EYE IN UNDER 10 MINUTES, LET ALONE THE TWO MINUTES THIS TOOK TO DO! There were no sloppy streaks that I had to touch up or anything you would expect. Just a clean, crisp line." —LadyMeow

    Bek O'Connell / BuzzFeed

    It's packed with protein, Ceramide 3, and collagen so it can work quickly to get your hair shiny and soft.

    Promising review: "My hair used to be really shiny. Then I had purple hair for a year, followed by blue for six months. My stylist had to bleach the beejeebers out of my hair to remove all of the funky colors. Ever since, my hair has been dry, crispy, and definitely not shiny. This stuff really makes a difference! I used it maybe 10-14 days ago, and I just redid it tonight. After shampooing, I towel-dried my hair and then put a big blob throughout my long-ish hair and clipped it up. I left it on for quite a while, just puttering around and getting chores done. Then I rinsed it and my hair feels soft and looks much shinier. I will keep using this as long as I need to (it will take a few years to grow out all the damage while maintaining length). I'm really glad that I read that article and bought the product" —SHANNON FRASER

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    10. A NYX makeup-setting spray that'll ensure a lightweight, matte finish that lasts ALL DAY after a few quick spritzes. Foundation? Locked in. Eyeshadow? There to stay longer than you even did your makeup.

    Promising review: "I have a lot of acne and oily skin and I must say this setting spray is really the cherry on top! When I put this on after I finish applying makeup, I NEVER get oily! I have worn this through two shifts (I have two jobs), rode two buses to get home, and walked home, and I still looked flawless! This is a must-have." —Sasha

    Get it from Amazon for $3.79.

    11. A Chapstick conditioning lip scrub, because this'll make your pucker as even as possible, therefore wishing flaky lipstick adieu. Not to mention its formula of maracuja and coconut oil, shea butter, and vitamin E will leave chapped lips feeling totally refreshed after just a couple of minutes.

    Promising review: "I love the sugar scrub on the lips. I put it on every night. It makes your lips super smooth. I wish I would have known about this product years ago." —jennifer wiseman

    Get it from Amazon for $4.20+ (available in five formulas).

    12. A Radha rosehip oil for a routine that requires merely a few drops to tackle redness, scarring, pimples, and everything in-between. Reviewers use this before bed and wake up to ✨glowing✨, healing skin! Nothing will get in your way of clear skin again...not on this bb's watch.

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing. My skin has virtually no breakouts, appears smoother, and feels smoother now that I use this. I’m 32 and still get cystic acne, been on Accutane twice, and nothing worked. I’m so happy BuzzFeed had an article about it, I’m sold! Yes, its pretty oily, but it soaks in. I use it in the a.m. as my moisturizer and at p.m. before bed. It has a yellow tint, but fades after soaking in. I highly recommend it." —Emily Jacob

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    13. A Tarte teeth-whitening pen so you can use it throughout the day to help give your grin a boost — plus its soft-bristle brush works well on uneven teeth, thanks to its 360° application. People say their teeth look a shade or two whiter after the first couple of uses!


    AND it's bleach-free, which is great for avoiding sensitivity!

    Promising review: "Other whitening treatments have been way too harsh on my teeth, and I chose this one because I wanted a vegan one that didn't use strips. I've only used it a few times and I can tell that my teeth are whiter. The formula doesn't have a weird taste, and it's not annoying to leave on. It's easy enough to apply that I use it frequently. I will repurchase when I run out!" —Sara H

    Get it from Tarte for $22, or a similar pack of two from Amazon for $19.99.

    14. A Mizon eye cream with a whopping combo of collagen, raspberry extract, argan oil, shea butter, hyaluronic acid, and MORE to fade fine lines and deeply nourish your under-eyes. This just may become the most soothing (and quickest!) part of your routine — with results that DELIVER.

    Promising review: "Holy smokes. I couldn't believe my eyes when I looked at my under-eye bags/dark circles after applying this. I went around showing everyone in my family. I cannot rave enough about how wonderful this product is. It goes on smooth, feels very cool under the eye, and it isn't heavy at all. It evaporates really well on the skin and doesn't leave any greasy or sticky residue. This outdoes even some of the $50-$80 eye creams I have tried before. This is now my everyday eye cream. I'm done trying out new products." —Jolie Colin

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98+ (available in two sizes).

    15. A bottle of Teddie Organics rose water toner spray that'll treat your acne on-the-go and drastically reduce redness and oily T-zones as soon as you use it. You just have to spritz. Not to mention it has a heavenly 🌹rose scent 🌹.

    It'll also restore your skin's pH balance and fade redness. It's everything you want your toner to do, except now you can use it WHEREVER. Plus it's organic and suitable for sensitive skin!

    Promising review: "I have very acne-prone and sensitive skin that is pale with pink and red undertones. I break out very easily, and my skin is irritated even by the 'sensitive skin' brands and formulas. I have used EVERYTHING under the sun to aid in redness and sensitivity, and nothing has worked to calm flare-ups like this. I wake up and my skin is glowing and peachy pale, as opposed to red and blotchy. This rose water has not only improved my skin's redness and overall tone, but it has virtually eliminated any signs on acne. I use before I put on my redness moisturizer and before bed as a refresher. I also find myself spritzing at various times of the day, because the fragrance is so pleasant." —Kathy Pancake

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    16. A Revlon one-step hair dryer and styler, because this'll bring pro-like blowouts right to your ~fingertips~ by creating sleek, frizz-free 'dos in half the time. How? Flexible tangle-free bristles smooth and style your hair as you brush, while negative ions condition and reduce static as you dry. The result: an easy-peasy glossy mane.


    It has two heat and speed setting, plus a cool option!

    Promising review: "I have very thick, long and wavy hair and this hair dryer/straightener is the best ever at making it look like I just stepped out of a salon! I have a ton of different hair styling tools, mostly because I had not found one that really does what I need well — until I bought this one! It dries and straightens my hair in just 10-15 minutes and instead of a flat dry look I get from a hair straightener, it looks silky! People at work keep asking where I get my hair done. It is fabulous at helping get the hair in the back of my head. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this dryer!" —TJ

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99.

    17. A CoverGirl matte concealer for avoiding ruining your entire morning in the name of covering a pimple, and surprise yourself with how quickly this'll get the job done. Its stick design is easy to use and blend, plus reviewers say it takes *very* little to achieve full coverage without additional foundation. No fuss. No mess.

    AND it's available in 30 shades, so it's easier to find one that actually looks natural.

    Promising review: "For all of you lovely makeup lovers (like myself), this stuff is amazing! I honestly thought I was going to get ehh ok results especially because I usually conceal with a peach/orange color correcting concealer for my under eyes and acne scars, because they're quite a bit darker than the rest of my face. I also normally set with a powder before applying my foundation over the top but I wanted to see if this was good enough on its own and it is. I didn't set it or my foundation and after shopping for hours in the Texas heat, there weren't any creases or patchy blotches. I love it." —Kimber Rosee

    Get it from Amazon for $7.54 (available in 30 shades).

    18. A popular eyelash curler so you can pump up your lashes' volume and prevent clumping — all before you even put on mascara. Reviewers with short lashes swear by these, because they effectively lengthen without tugging or pulling!


    It's recommended to hold down the eyelash curler for three to five seconds, then pulse halfway down the lashes three times — one second per pulse.

    Promising review: "I have had many eyelash curlers over the years, at varying prices, but this is the best one ever! My last lash curler was twice the price and this is 1000 times better. The product is very well made and I love the rose gold. It will be my only one for the rest of my life." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in three colors).

    19. A Neutrogena anti-residue shampoo that'll go straight to the source of damage — your scalp. It hits the reset button for dull, damaged hair — just a weekly rinse with this will remove dulling residues (hello, styling products) and bring your mane back to its previous ✨shiny✨ state.

    Promising review: "This is a great product! It removed months/years of product build-up in my hair that I didn't even know I had. After just one wash, my hair felt lighter, finer, more voluminous, and I needed fewer styling products to achieve the same results. I have long, dark, fine hair and I use this about once every two weeks, or once every four to five washes." —Kat

    Get it from Amazon for $4.74.

    20. A tin of Cerépil blue wax beads because not only is this the brand that most higher-end salons use, but it's easy as all heck to use at home for literally half the cost. People swear it's practically painless, leaves zero bumps or redness, and gives them the same results as a professional session. Feel free to tip yourself.

    Most reviewers use the Gigi Wax Warmer ($25.45 on Amazon) to heat up the beads! You'll also need applicator sticks ($7.99 on Amazon for a pack of 100).

    "My frequent trips to European Wax Center was costing a lot of money, so I decided to get serious about self-waxing. I purchased a soft wax that you use with the strips, and then this. I really had a hard time getting my armpits done with the strips. They peeled off my skin, and required multiple passes. It hurt so much, and I was sure I'd never be able to do it. Last weekend, I decided to try the hard wax, and it was so easy that I just started waxing other parts of my body like my legs, upper lips, bikini area, and stomach strip. I did multiple passes, and it handled it all perfectly. I'll reserve this wax for my face, and underarms since I got no discomfort, and so far no ingrown hair using this wax. I will definitely be repurchasing." —JinxPhoenix

    21. A set of Nip + Fab glycolic cleansing pads for resurfacing new skin in no time at all, thanks to their formula of exfoliating 2.8% glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid, witch hazel, and a light moisturizer. Even if you're mid-breakout, reviewers say these are gentle enough to tackle active pimples.

    FYI, the witch hazel is there to soothe and tone your skin (to balance out the other exfoliating properties). And if you're a skincare obsessive like me, I don't have to tell you how great a deal $10 is for glycolic acid. Bless.

    Promising review: "I am new to the world of AHAs and glycolic acid, so I'm not sure how this product measures up to others similar to it. But I'll never go back to NOT exfoliating. I've noticed my stubborn acne scars fading drastically after only a week of using these nightly. My recurring acne in those areas seem to be dying down, and my overall skin tone seems to be brightening. I am really impressed so far!" —Mitzy McMillion

    Get a pack of 60 from Amazon for $9.97.

    22. An Ohii eye-brightening pen so you can perk up dark, tired under-eyes on your way to the job that forced you to wake up at the crack of dawn. Its glimmering, highlighting shades deliver a cooling sensation *and* illuminate dark under-eyes — may this bring you a moment of peace before your day begins.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "Ohhh my god, this is my new favorite product. This makes my under-eyes GLOW. It has a nice shimmer that isn't too much. Its hard to describe everything this does for my eyes, but I honestly think it's just magic. It makes me look so refreshed even if I hardly slept the night before. I got the peach color and will probably always stick with that." —MissAshes

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $18 (available in two shades).

    23. A Revlon nail buffer that'll help you maintain shiny, strong nails without the need for professional manis and can EASILY be used from truly wherever. It shapes and shines even brittle nails so they always look *well-groomed*.

    Promising review: "I was not expecting much, because I'm used to nail buffers that take forever to use because they do not smooth over the nail sufficiently so there are obvious bumps. However, this buffer already polished my nail with the first side as well as my other sets did at finish. Then the second side (white side) polished my nails in seconds. The shine lasts and lasts! Touch-up is easy and I have never been more satisfied with a nail buffer in my life!" —Alexandra

    Get it from Amazon for $4.26.

    24. A set of PleasingCare green tea oil-absorbing tissues, because these'll take blotting sheets one step further by absorbing excess oil, controlling shine, AND soothing irritated complexions with green tea. Under $15 and takes two seconds to use? I call witchcraft.

    They're even all-natural! They're made from 100% natural linen fibers with organic bamboo charcoal to keep you nice and fresh all day.

    Promising review: "I love these oil blotting tissues! I never had any issues with oily skin until recently. I had tried other products that didn't seem to work well. These tissues are amazing and are small to keep right in your purse for on the go. I only need to use them once a day usually and they produce immediate results. You can see the oil absorption on the tissue and your skin has a nice matte look to it with no more shine! Highly recommend this product." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of 200 for $11.95+ (available in three formulas).

    25. A super-absorbent, lightweight microfiber towel so you can leave the house with frizz-free tresses, even if you're short on time. It cuts drying time *in half* and is much more gentle than the traditional cotton towel, so you and your hair are both happy and in one piece every single morning.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I bought my first Aquis microfiber towels decades ago for a trip to the Galapagos. I actually still have my two original towels but have since added to the collection. They remain as good today as they were back then, and I don’t wrap my wet hair up in anything but! My hair is less tangled and dries faster when I wrap it in my Aquis towel straight from the shower. The added bonus is that while it is wrapped, I can easily do makeup without stray hairs ending up in the mascara brush. Love my Aquis towels!" —Loves to Travel

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (available in eight colors).

    26. A set of Schick dermaplaning tools that'll remove peach fuzz and shape brows painlessly (and without paying for a wax). They're gentle, precise, and won't leave irritation marks like most threading or razors. Aka your face will be as smooth as a baby's bottom and all you did was flick your wrist.


    Promising review: "I regularly used the Tinkle facial razors which I thought worked well, but I just used one of these razors for the first time yesterday and OMG the amount of peach fuzz and to my surprise dead skin that came off was shocking and oh-so-satisfying. I will definitely be stocking up." —I & S. Stark

    27. A Stila correcting serum, because this'll address all your concerns with one easy-to-use product. This bb will neutralize redness, conceal blemishes, energize skin tones, and brighten complexions — all before you even use foundation. What do we want? RESULTS. How do we want it? Quickly.

    Promising review: "I am so in love with this product! It really corrects and evens out my skin a magic primer. It's the first step and everything that follows is completely easy. You don't have to worry about blending your makeup, because this already does that for you. It's a bit pricey, just like other Stila products, but truly, a little goes a long way. You will only need half a pump per use." —sarah paulson

    Get it from Amazon for $36 (available in three formulas).

    28. A bottle of Tend Skin's shaving solution for nixing ingrown hairs and razor bumps ~in the bud~. When applied before waxing or shaving, it drastically reduces redness, irritation, and bumps — even in the bikini area!

    Reviewers say you can also use this after shaving!

    Promising review: "This stuff is AMAZING. You would never believe it, but it works wonders. One of the worst parts of summer for me is razor burn and chafing/irritation, particularly at the beach when the hair follicles on my legs dry up from the saltwater. This stuff prevents ALL of that. No bumps, no pain, nothing. The best part? It doesn't matter when you put it on. Before you shave, after you shave, even when you're not shaving, going to the beach, getting back from the beach, etc. It just always works." —Claire

    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I had heard about this and finally decided to give it a try after going through many other prestige brands. This product does not disappoint at all. It goes on smoothly and is just the right amount of color. Also, it makes my brows stay in place all day, not just for the first hour after application. This will be a forever purchase." —Jessica

    30. A L'Oréal protein recharge treatment that'll bring fried, over-processed manes back to life (all from the shower!). Its blend of almond extracts and protein elixirs both strengthens your hair and protects it from further heat damage — it can even withstand bleaching!

    ANDDD it mends split ends and restores shine. I am IMPRESSED.

    Promising review: "I noticed a difference in my hair as soon as I used it. My hair is just past my shoulders by three inches. It's wavy, but extremely dry and has been shedding a lot lately. So I was desperate to try something new before losing it all. It’s so thin now that it’s a real concern. Right after the first use, I’ve noticed that it is shiny, soft, and much easier to mange. And it's tangle free and has body without being weighed down. It’s nice and fluffy. I LOVE THIS STUFF." —Aragonme

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97.

    31. A splurge-worthy Amika hair waver with three connected barrels to create usually-difficult, "effortless" beach waves with one simple tool. All you need to do is slowly move it down your hair in the same way you straighten — this'll do all the curling for you.

    Its molding leaves zero creases, while its ionic technology leaves your hair totally smooth! AND it works on all hair types, including thick.

    Promising review: "I'm clueless about hair styling — I'm an air-dry and go kinda gal, but this was stupidly easy to use, and created bouncy, buoyant waves that served my fine hair beautifully. I first tested it on freshly washed hair, and it gave me texture and bounce when my hair had been feeling lifeless. First use, I am in LOVE!" —lasilver

    Get it from Sephora for $120.

    32. A Maybelline under-eye concealer, because its super simple sponge applicator tip and goji berry extracts will treat dark circles and puffy under-eyes in the easiest and neatest way possible. You may have binged Mindhunter all night, but after a couple of dabs the world will never know.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This is the best under-eye concealer ever. I am 67-years-old and have tried them all. It blends nicely with my foundation and has never caked. The sponge applicator is soft and makes application quick and easy. I will continue to use this product and hope, like many products I've used over the years, that it doesn't get discontinued." —Morty

    Get it from Amazon for $7.94+ (available in 12 shades).

    33. A CeraVe moisturizing cream for flaking on super dry and red skin with literally just this product. It's so thick yet effective that it's earned the National Eczema Seal of Acceptance, which you'll definitely understand when your complexion finally feels hydrated for 24 hours.

    Promising review: "I developed a dry, patchy area on the side of my mouth, but figured it was dry skin due to winter. After a week it spread to my chin and other side of my mouth. I thought it would go away on its own but then three weeks passed. I tried moisturizers and coconut oil but nothing worked! I was frustrated and embarrassed by this patchy, scaley skin on my face! As a last ditch effort I tried Cerave and it worked! It was much better after two days! Its now a month later and its still gone!" —Kathleen

    34. A Hair Dance powder dry shampoo so you can manage just washed–looking hair whenever you don't have time to shower in the morning (aka five out of five work days). It uses rice starch to absorb excess oil without leaving white residue, while seamlessly blending into every hair color. All you need to do is use your fingers.

    Promising review: "After using this, my hair has great volume and it doesn't look greasy at all. I have very fine, blonde hair. My hair gets greasy so fast, I'm amazed at how well this works and very impressed. The bottle is tiny, but you will be surprised how little you need to use. It will last you several months. It has a very light lavender smell and is not overpowering at all. If you want a more natural approach, definitely give this a try!" —Amazon Customer

    35. A Shea Moisture black soap bar that'll clear up eczema and psoriasis breakouts before you have time to scratch. Its blend of aloe, tea tree oil, and soothing oats not only calms irritated skin (hello, deep moisture), but also effectively treats acne! Is there anything this can't do? NO.


    It *also* has lemon balm and gotu kola to conquer acne-causing, irritating bacteria. Basically this has all the clarifying properties of their cult-favorite African black soap ($5.99), but with the added benefits of helping to treat eczema and psoriasis!

    Promising review: "It took four doctors to tell me that I had psoriasis, and I had it bad — all over my back, legs, arms, chest, and hands. I started using this immediately and I am mostly cleared up. The doctor wanted to put me on Humira, which has all kinds of side effects. Plus, this soap makes your skin smooth and smells good. Even my doctor is impressed." —George

    36. A pack of Bioré pore strips to draw blackheads, dirt, and oil out of clogged pores from your nose and forehead like a flipping magnet. Deep clean does not even BEGIN to define these. Did I mention they work in 10 minutes?

    Promising review: "This product has been a favorite blackhead removal of mine for years and years. I only use this about once every couple of weeks and every time I am amazed at how much oil and dead skin buildup these strips remove. The application process is simple and easy, I tend to apply this right after a shower (because the steam helps the product work better/open up pores).This product has never dried out my skin, broken my skin, or failed to remove blackheads and I recommend this everyone." —Jennifer N

    37. A cuticle and oil nail pen, because this'll drastically repair brittle, damaged nails and cuticles — and can totally be used one-the-go. People actually also use this to stop biting their nails, meaning you can put an end to the habit yourself in your free time.

    Its nourishing formula combines jojoba wax ester (a v hydrating ingredient), vitamins A and E, and grape seed and tea tree oil.

    Promising review: "I NEVER leave reviews for anything I buy, good or bad, because I buy so much stuff from Amazon, but THIS deserves a review. My nails were brittle, flaky, and peeled very easily. I applied this multiple times a day, and saw mega improvement in my nails. They weren't completely fixed so I bought another, because as I said, my nails were improving. I'm a little more than halfway done with the second one and my nail are so strong! So so strong. I totally recommend it. It's worth the $8." —Don
